    how do I have my Magic Bands sent to Resort

    Hi Don,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How fantastic to have an upcoming trip planned to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Since your arrival date is so soon, I am afraid it may be too late to have your MagicBands shipped to your resort unless you have done so already. If you are scheduled to stay at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, your MagicBands would have shipped to your home address in the United States. If you ordered additional customized MagicBands from Shop Disney Parks Online App, you could ship directly to your resort hotel, but, at this point, I am not sure they would reach you in time.

    If you plan to use Disney's Magical Express transportation from the airport, you will need your MagicBands. If, for some reason you do not have them with you, just be sure to have your resort hotel confirmation number handy. Remember that your MagicBands serve as your resort hotel room key if staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel. You will also use them to redeem your Fast Pass+ selections at attractions and, if staying on Disney property, you can use them to charge to your account. You would just need to be sure you have created a PIN number. 

    We love MagicBands. They make vacationing so much easier unless, of course, someone in your party loses one. Rest assured, even that can be handled by the gracious cast members! On a prior visit, I lost my special edition Star Wars, "Awaken Summer" MagicBand. A cast member gave me a replacement but eventually someone found my Star Wars MagicBand and a cast member shipped it to me at home. I was devastated when I lost it but thrilled when it was found!

    Don, I trust you will get your MagicBands and embark on a spectacular adventure!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
